Most I could spend is 180's, but I'm still job hunting, so spending money shortens my time. I had a good bit of money saved from last job but its dwindling away.
Case is kinda off white. Once I get a job I'll probably get a lian li case anyway, so color doesn't really matter that much.
That Samsung looks pretty nice, but cheapest I can find it shipped is 140(from NJ), 165.15 from newegg because of tax. I'm gonna call a few places that used to have a good selection of monitors to search for that samsung, if I can find it for less then 145(before tax) I'll probably buy it.
I was looking at this monitor last night, I can find it for around 160-165 local(bout 180-185 after CA tax). The specs look very respectable, but I don't have much first hand knowledge about quality of viewsonic(or monitors companys in general). Any thoughs on this one?
Edit: btw its the 1280x1024 at 80Hz that interests me in that monitor, not the uselessly small 1600 res.
That nec is a nice monitor, but too expensive, too big, and too much heat, every hour this comp is on this room heats up around 5 degrees F.
